Python convert tuple to string


I have a tuple of characters like such:

('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e')

How do I convert it to a string so that it is like:

Use str.join:

>>> tup = ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e')
>>> ''.join(tup)
>>> help(str.join)
Help on method_descriptor:

    S.join(iterable) -> str

    Return a string which is the concatenation of the strings in the
    iterable.  The separator between elements is S.

here is an easy way to use join.

''.join(('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e'))

This works:

''.join(('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e'))

It will produce:


You can also use a delimiter like a comma to produce:


By using:

','.join(('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e'))

Easiest way would be to use join like this:

>>> myTuple = ['h','e','l','l','o']
>>> ''.join(myTuple)

This works because your delimiter is essentially nothing, not even a blank space: ”.

If just using str() for a tuple as shown below:

t = ('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e')

print(t, type(t))

s = str(t) # Here

print(s, type(s))

Only the type can be changed from tuple to str without changing the value as shown below:

('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e') <class 'tuple'>
('a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'g', 'x', 'r', 'e') <class 'str'>
